Spotlight on.....Shanell Dean

We chose some of our September starts to answer a few questions about their first few months at Belfast Central Training.  We hope this will help anyone else who is considering signing up to do a course with us in 2019!


Who –   Shanell Dean

Department –   Hairdressing

When did you start? –   September 2018

How did you hear about BCT?  How did you sign up? –

A student who previously came to BCT recommended that I should sign up.  A friend and I came in and signed up together.


Did you already know students here or ones that were starting at the same time as you? –

I knew a previous student but only knew my friend David.  This made my time here more enjoyable while settling in.


What did you think of Bootcamp?

I thought that it was a very good idea as it made me feel more comfortable coming to BCT.


Tell us about your placement, where is it, do you like it, what do you enjoy most about it?

I was in placement in TIme to Shine on the Oldpark Rd.  I loved going to placement and enjoy getting experience in salons and then coming into BCT to learn more.


What do you do when you come into BCT each week, do you find it fun?

On Wednesday's I have Essential Skills classes, they are so much fun!  On Thursday's I have Hairdressing and it is really enjoyable - especially when we are in the salon!


How do you feel your first 4 months have gone?

I feel that I have settled in very well here in BCT and I love everything about it.


If you had to tell future students one thing about BCT what would it be?

I would tell them that BCT is the best choice I made and it will be theirs too!  I'd highly recommend coming to BCT.


Thank you Shanell, we think it was the best choice you made too!!
